Since every other brand is going electric, it should come as no surprise when TATA Motors announced the launch of Tata Nexon EV. With brands like MG, Hyundai, Kia, and others focusing so much on electric vehicles, it was just a matter of time before TATA launched their own electric vehicle.
Well, Tata did make its official entry into the electric market with Tata Tigor EV. However, it didn’t really generate much of a buzz.
Many of you might’ve already forgotten about Tigor EV. I know I did. However, TATA Motors aims to do something different. Basically, the company tried to combine comfort, practicality, and affordability.
As for the pricing, Tata Nexon price in India starts at INRs. 13.99 Lakhs. Moreover, it is available in three different variants; XM, XZ+ and XZ+ LUX. Since it is an electric SUV, there are bound to be some tax-cuts. So, Tata Nexon EV price in Nepal is bound to be more affordable in comparison.
Note: Tata Nexon EV is confirmed to launch in Nepal. However, it is unclear when that might happen, it might launch in three months or a year. Only time will tell!
So, did they create a perfect electric SUV? Well, let’s find out!
Tata Nexon EV: Overview
Tata Nexon EV is powered by high-capacity 30.2kWh Li-Ion battery which can generate a max power of 129HP and max torque of 245Nm. Moreover, the electric motor is based on Tata’s Ziptron technology, which is a permanent-magnet AC motor. Furthermore, it can get to 0-100kmph in just 9.9 seconds!
